Interested animated instructional film detailing electronic communications in the early part of the century. Interestingly enough, the popular vocational school DeVry claims that they began as a school in 1931, with no mention of the production of these informational films as early as (in the case of this film) 1928.

An odd little film
This little oddity uses some animation to explain the inner workings of the doorbell, the telegraph, the human ear and the telephone, though I'm not exactly sure why.
Despite the description, the film is actually silent.
